Jester The world has lost a wonderful man....

Blimey! I'm half asleep as i write....

but this is very disheartening stumbling across this
message suddenly, learning just now....a dear friend has just passed away.

I knew Alan for ten years or so.....we performed at various festivals in Europe. Always really enjoyed his warm personality, such a sweetheart and a pleasure to work with.
I remember at the Feldkirch Gaukler Festival in Austria, back in '98,' Alan saying to me before the event started 'you're going to win this busking prize i guarentee you!'
I said 'you've got to be joking!'
Oddly enough i did. I'll never forget the good laugh we had, looking at each other's noses, as the solid brass minstrel trophy had quite a beak too.

The memorial starts in just under an hour......most likely
this message won't be read in time......
but i'll surely be there in spirit with you folks.

Alan truly was a great man and a wonderfully funny performer.

Our hearts are with you Alan.

We Love You!!!
